Rehabilitation Psychology

Division 22: Rehabilitation Psychology seeks to bring together all APA members interested in the psychological aspects of disability and rehabilitation, to educate the public on issues related to disability and rehabilitation, and to develop high standards and practices for professional psychologists who work in this field. Members may be involved in clinical service, research, teaching, or administration. The division publishes a quarterly journal, Rehabilitation Psychology®, and has an active email list. Updates of current and future professional activities are now listed on the division website.
